Creative use of mud

       Juan Espinosa of the El Pueblo Museum slaps specially mixed mud on the horno (adobe oven) he was building in the Galloway Homestead area of the Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site June 10. He was finishing up the basic structure at this point; the final smoothing took place the next day. Rock Ledge will use the horno for cooking as part of its historic-ranch motif.
